Blood of the Wicked
fullDescription

This "gripping crime fiction" is the first in the acclaimed police procedural series set in Brazil (Florida Sun-Sentinel).

Chief Inspector Mario Silva of Brazil's federal police is a good cop in a bad system—Brazil's justice system is rife with corruption, and constantly a beat behind criminal elements. But Silva and his team of colorful sidekicks—baby-faced Gonçalves, who is irresistible to lady witnesses, chubby, crass Nuñes, and Mara Carta, the chief of intelligence with a soft spot for Silva—still manage to crack their difficult and sometimes ugly cases.

In the interior of Brazil, landless workers are battling the owners of vast fazendas. When a visiting archbishop is assassinated, Silva is called upon to investigate. Then a newspaper owner, a TV journalist, a landowner's son, and a priest are brutally killed, and Silva's team faces a challenge unlike any before . . .
